Owner operator trucking professionals transporting over-dimension loads for car shipping firms providing car delivery services in Saskatchewan will be getting some help from the government of Saskatchewan that should make their job a little easier in the future. The Saskatchewan provincial government announced an investment of $1.6 million the other day to help develop high clearance transport corridors to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of transporting over-dimension loads in Saskatchewan in the years ahead. The development of high clearance transport corridors is needed to allow over-dimension loads to be transported along the transport corridors of Saskatchewan without having to raise or temporarily cut utility lines and other structures along the route.
Which transport corridors within Saskatchewan’s borders is the provincial government planning on making the changes in question that would allow for easier transport of over-dimension loads on the transport routes of Saskatchewan? The corridors being proposed for improvements run from Saskatoon to the Alberta border on Highway 7 and Melville to Rosetown on Highways 14 and 15. All well travelled transport routes that are used on a daily basis by transport vehicles traveling through Saskatchewan and to destinations within the province, so this idea is certain to be applauded by the transport industry of Canada.
This is great news for auto transport carriers operating on the roads of Saskatchewan and should certainly simplify the process of transporting over-dimension loads in Canada as once the improvements are made shipping companies that want to ship over-dimension loads will pay a permit fee to use the corridor in question, rather than arranging with regulatory authorities to plan a route and arrange for utilities to be raised or cut along the transport route in question.
